The Ski Edit: Hottest New Ski Hotels

Whether you’re looking for a chic chalet, a five star resort or something totally different (ice hotel maybe?), we’ve compiled the most incredible new hotels for your ski break this winter season. And of course, they all have excellent après ski too!

And you can hit the slopes in style with Lisa Haynes’ ski packing edit. Transition from ski to après-ski in complete style. 

Skye Niseko, Niseko, Japan
Opening: December 2018

Skye Niseko is a striking, modern hotel positioned high up in Hirafu village in Niseko in a fantastic ski-in, ski-out position. All the apartments are styled with stone and wood finishes and have floor to ceiling windows with stunning views of the active volcano Mt Yotei and ski slopes.

Le Massif, Courmayeur, Italy
Opening: December 2018

If the view of Mont Blanc is not enough to tempt you to this new eco-friendly hotel than its location in the Alpine resort of Courmayeur, famous for its excellent shopping, nightlife and skiing, just might. The five star hotel is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World and is just a few minutes from the slopes. We could spend all day gazing at those stunning views, especially over some hard-earned après ski at one of the hotel’s restaurants or the spa. Website 
Rates start from €350 per room per night, on a bed and breakfast basis.

Our Retreat, Chamonix, France
Opening: February 2019

The Josie, British Columbia, Canada
Opening: December 2018

The Josie, named after a local mine, is the first ski-in, ski-out hotel to be built in Canada for over a decade.

We love the earthy tones, wood paneling and beautiful views over the unspoilt Canadian wilderness. Website
